Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gordon leapt into the public consciousness after her highlight reel as a quarterback in the Utah Gremlin football league went viral. Her stats are amazing: 65 tackles; 1,911 yards; and 35 scores, including 25 touch downs. The kicker? It was her first season playing football, and she is nine years old. Sam’s rise as “sweet feet,” a moniker given by her coach, has landed her on a Wheaties box, Good Morning America, and Sports Center. This introduction features photos throughout, some of which have been shot by Sam’s personal hero, BYU running back Luke Staley. In her own words, with the aid of coauthor Bruening, Gordon recounts her first encounters with discrimination and emphasizes the support of her proud family, who helped her with both the spotlight and the criticism that came with being a girl playing for an all-male team. Sam spins her fantastic year into an inspirational tale, sure to encourage not only other girls but anyone else facing long odds. Grades 4-6. --Courtney Jones --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This book is in my tops and I don't like to read nonfiction books but I loved this book!

I really like that Sam thinks that her fame wasn't just because of her, it was because of everyone else to.

Both my 11 year-old son and I really enjoyed this book. In fact, my son called this book "awesome," and then he looked up Samantha's highlights on YouTube. This book is perfect for boys, girls, sports fans, or just anyone who enjoys a good story.

What do you get when a 9-year-old girl believes that she can accomplish the impossible, even when it never occurs to her that such feats might be impossible? You get Sam Gordon, that’s who.

Sam said it best in the book...Her story is not just about her. It’s about what can be accomplished even when other people think we can’t. Sam wants people who hear her story to not be afraid to try hard things. And as this remarkable young person has demonstrated, when you’re chasing your dream, it doesn’t matter if you’re a boy or a girl.

I didn’t know much about Sam Gordon when I picked up this book, but I am definitely walking away as a cheering fan after having read it! The book is written in Sam’s own words, in an engaging format which young readers and adults alike will enjoy. The chapters are filled with fun sidebar factoids about Sam and her history, vital stats, and astonishing accomplishments. These “snapshots” of Sam, along with actual photographs which are peppered throughout the book, provide a unique insight into an exceptionally driven and talented young athlete. I really did marvel at both her character and her accomplishments in every chapter.

Yes, Sam became an “overnight sensation,” but I was blown away at her drive to excel long before she even imagined that she would tackle the challenge of playing football in an all-boys’ league. She has wicked-amazing abilities, but her preparation, drive, and determination led to her success. Still, Sam demonstrates that there are more important things in life than just winning. Sam has changed lives, influenced others, and remains humble throughout. She credits her family, coach, and teammates for her success.

This book is definitely a five star rating. I really like that Sam thinks that her fame wasn't just because of her, it was because of everyone else to. Sam is a caring person, and she respects other people. When I read that she feels sorry for her stepmom and helps her do the dishes when her siblings are playing, I was so shocked. Since she was a football player, I thought she would be tough and rude and call little kids punk..But she surprised me by being caring and tough at the same time. Am just saying, this book is amazing.

Students really enjoyed reading this nonfiction text. It was good for them to hear Samantha's story. There is also a very short video to watch on You Tube about this remarkable athlete.
